Embedded Insiders Tackle RISC-V Summit; Get Our Take on WD, NXP Announcements

December 11, 2018 Embedded Computing Design

The RISC-V Foundation held its Silicon Valley Summit last week. From sheer numbers alone, the open-source instruction-set architecture (ISA) known as RISC-V is gaining momentum in a pretty big way. And the announcements from the event were aplenty. Two big ones, from Western Digital (WD) and NXP (sort of, through the Open-ISA.org) prove that it’s all about the ecosystem and both vendors are doing their part to make that ecosystem grow into something sustainable. Listen to this week’s Embedded Insiders podcast to hear about these announcements and a few others. But more importantly, hear what these announcements really mean.
